I grant you that, although this is part of a normative section, this does
not carry much requirement.

I guess I agree with you. As 4.2.2. does not convey a strong requirement,
making 5.2.6 normative does not make much sense.

Note however that my vote was +0, not -1, so it was not strongly
constraining either ;-)

the text above, I'd likely propose making it non-normative in a more
visibly recognizable way.

4.2.2.  It's a good demonstration of why I was careful to say we'd keep any
text we changed to non-normative.>
